The 3 strikes and your out rule????Dont even give them the 2 other chances. This place is run like a circus! I wish I can say the food was decent, but it wasn't even that! Sent my food back 3 times, first time undone food, 2nd time the sides were ice cold due to the lack of common sense to give new sides after drying out waiting for my chop to be cooked AGAIN, 3rd time I gave up! Our server was nice, good personality, apologetic, even she said it happened all the time. What kind of "chefs" (if you will) do they have working for them? When you have your staff embarassed to work at your place, there is a problem! I asked for the manager, HA! RUDE AND UNEXPERIENCED SEEMINGLY SO. "we'll take it off the bill" I'm not looking for anything extravagant, maybe just an explaination or a more sincere apology would of cut it. Almost seemed like she had to do it often and was tired of it. REVAMP YOUR STAFF AND KITCHEN STAFF ASAP BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE (that might be an overstatement) GOOD LUCK, I'll stick with surrounding restaurants....

My husband and I stopped in here on valentines night to get a drink. The drinks were great. I asked the bartender for the tab. He looks at us and says "16.50". He didn't give us any type of ticket showing the cost of the drinks. My husband was about to pay cash when I said "wait". I handed the bartender my credit card. He looked frustrated, walked over to the computer, and THEN put our drinks in to see how much they REALLY cost. He walked back over with a credit card receipt showing $12.10 and still no ticket showing me the cost. I paid it and left. To say the least, don't trust the bartenders. They are crooked. (at least the tall white middle aged male one)

My husband and I went here for my birthday. The food was great...we started with the Three Sisters appetizer and the Gazpacho, both excellent. For the main course, I had the Chicken Mole and was quite please with it, however my husband was not as impressed with the Vegetarian Bounty Plate.

We both thought the atmosphere and the look of the restaurant was very nice. However we were really disappointed in the overall service. It was a slow night, but our waiter seemed to keep himself more occupied by chatting with co-workers and checking his cell phone then checking on his tables. He was slow to remove dishes and empty bottles; we had to ask for our water to be refilled.

Our overall experience was good and we are willing to give it a second chance.

Great food, ambience & service.

I wasn't impressed the first 2 times that I went there. The food came out cold the first time and the second time it was a little bland.

Maybe it was that damn tequila or raspberry margaritas we had but after a few more visits, I got to love the mussels & buffalo burgers best.

My husband loved the steak special and sweet potato fries that came along with it.

I took my wife to Geronimo or her birthday. We waited forty five minutes for the food on a slow night. The little bison burgers were good but only good in the way a white castle burger is. It was towards the end of the night and the head chef kept going in and out of the restaurant nervously smoking whilst we still waited for the rest of our meal. The waitress forgot that it was my wife's birthday and brought us the bill. What a night. We just left, obviously unhappy.

My husband and I were very eager to try this new restaurant but we were very disappointed. First, there is no sign on the restaurant indicating that we were in the right place. We waited over an hour to sit in a very cramped space.

Once we were sat, our waitress greeted us in a black, revealing, halter top with ripped jeans -not our idea of a uniform. The food was very bland, and not worth the money. The food is better at Chilis so that must tell you something!

My husband and I dine out frequently and don't mind spending the money for an enjoyable experience. On this night, however, we stood in a corner listening the loud club music, ate bland food, and paid too much...

I hate to give this restaurant a negative review because the waitresses were very friendly but our dinner was horrid. The pork chop that I ordered was cooked until it was rubbery and the squash mash was watery to the point that it was gross to eat. The chicken with the mole sauce was inedible and by the time the waitress offered dessert we paid our check and ran out of there. Soul de Cuba Restaurant, next door to Geronimo, has good Spanish food for much less.

Geronimo is a good looking restaurant but it is obvious that it is does not have serious chefs working for them. The two times that we went there with friends we were appalled by the low quality of the food. The only thing south western about the food is the ubiquitous use of peppers. otherwise it is as genuine as Taco Bell is Mexican. The pork relleno is better at most of the Mexican places in town for half the price. The breaded chicken was dry and seemed as if they might have come frozen from Costco. We won't be going back to a restaurant that clearly does not care about the food that it serves.
